Southern Ridges Walk

Next is another of the highlights of the trail, the 36-meter-high Henderson Waves pedestrian bridge, connecting Telok Blangah to Mount Faber. Shaped like an undulating caterpillar sculpted from wood and steel, the name is appropriate and the view of the sea beyond the jungle is stunning. The bridge is lit up with a light show from 7 pm to 2 pm daily.

Henderson Wave by Eustaquio Santimano

Once over to Mount Faber (one of Singapore's older parks), you have the unappetizing choices for the first stretch are to either follow along the paved roads next to car or stomp off on the short poorly signed little trails that all seem to lead back to the roads. But the main attraction for most is Faber Point, home to the third and smallest of Singapore's many Merlions, decent views in all directions and an inexplicable abundance of tour groups ferried here on buses. A series of murals around the base of the pavilion offer a cheery and sanitised summary of Singapore's history.

View from Faber Point by Sengkang

Just down the road is the Jewel Box, containing the terminus of the cable car from Sentosa plus an assemblage of five expensive restaurants. For more substantial fare, it's best to keep going further down. The Marang Trail branches off to your right, an unlit staircase that offers the shortest route down to HarbourFront. Alternatively, keep on going straight and you'll reach the car park at the end of Mount Faber Park, from where you can take a bus to HarbourFront. In either case, you can now choose from the dozens of restaurants in the Vivocity shopping mall or chow down hawker style at the Seah Im Food Centre (on the other side of the street right next to the bus terminus).
